The second film from Afghan writer/director Shahrbanoo Sadat continues to follow the life story of 15-year-old Qodrat, played again by Qodratollah Qadiri, reprising his role from Sadat’s debut, Wolf and Sheep (2016).
Now a street urchin and orphan in 1989 Kabul, Qodrat’s story – inspired by the diary of Sadat’s real friend, Anwar Hashimi – takes a turn after he is caught hawking counterfeit cinema tickets and consequently sent to a Soviet-run orphanage.
Presented in the Director’s Fortnight section of the 2019 Festival de Cannes, Sadat’s film demonstrates the director’s ability to impressively switch from one emotion to another, but also from one genre to the other.
